Kyrgyzstan, Maimak, Talas Region. 10 April 2018.  WFP has created a sustainable, cost-effective model which the Government has replicated to further expand the reach of the programme, currently covering 450 primary schools across the country. Every day, children receive one hot, nutritious meal comprising soups or cereal porridges, fresh pastries and vitamin-rich drinks. WFP provides fortified wheat for the meals as well as technical assistance and trainings for school cooks.  A tiny school named after Raikan Shukurbekov is located in remote village of Maimak, along a Kyrgyz-Kazakh border. Although this village is only 300 km away from the country’s capital of Bishkek, it would take about 10 to 12 hours to get there by a road. Travelers would go through two 3000-meter mountain passes, a high-altitude valley and tens of little rivers in the way to Maimak. A school with only 150 students is a pilot in the WFP’s school meals optimization project. WFP provided canteen equipment and train a school chef to ensure the primary school students can have nutritious hot lunches every day, which are so much needed to help children get energy to study and develop in this challenging terrain.

Kyrgyzstan, Suzak region. 14 June 2017  Food insecurity is seasonal and correlated with chronic and deepening poverty in Kyrgyzstan. An estimated twelve percent of the population are food insecure. Although Kyrgyzstan’s gross domestic product (GDP) has increased over the past decade, growth has not trickled down to the poorest.  Insufficient social safety leave the poorest families with few opportunities to develop their skills or chances to meet their immediate needs. Frequent natural disasters, such as landslides and earthquakes, a complex ethnic and political environment, and a high dependency on the import of basic foods such as wheat further exhaust people’s resources.   Initially operating in an emergency capacity, WFP assisted nearly a million of Kyrgyzstan’s most vulnerable in the wake of the global food crisis and the failed harvests of 2008, and again following interethnic violence in Osh and Jalal-Abad in 2010.     Since then, WFP’s overarching objective has been to strengthen the Kyrgyz Government’s capacity to reduce food insecurity and undernutrition and to support communities’ long-term resilience. In 2011, with the emphasis shifting towards development and recovery, we implemented a country programme supporting more than half a million people through asset creation and income generation activities. WFP’s current activities focus on an improved school meals project, rural development, social protection, disaster risk management and climate change adaptation.  In the photo: Because it’s Ramadan, Muhamadamin from Suzak region in Kyrgyzstan is finishing his life-long project – a poem on faith, tolerance, patience and perseverance. Eager to be the first listeners, his three sons and 17 grandchildren came together for this month of Ramadan. Though it’s just a few lepeshka (flat bread, nan), cherry jam and tea for them to break a fast, they feel proud to share this very important moment in the Muhamadamin’s life.

Kyrgyzstan, Uzgen region. 12 June 2017  Food insecurity is seasonal and correlated with chronic and deepening poverty in Kyrgyzstan. An estimated twelve percent of the population are food insecure. Although Kyrgyzstan’s gross domestic product (GDP) has increased over the past decade, growth has not trickled down to the poorest.  Insufficient social safety leave the poorest families with few opportunities to develop their skills or chances to meet their immediate needs. Frequent natural disasters, such as landslides and earthquakes, a complex ethnic and political environment, and a high dependency on the import of basic foods such as wheat further exhaust people’s resources.   Initially operating in an emergency capacity, WFP assisted nearly a million of Kyrgyzstan’s most vulnerable in the wake of the global food crisis and the failed harvests of 2008, and again following interethnic violence in Osh and Jalal-Abad in 2010.     Since then, WFP’s overarching objective has been to strengthen the Kyrgyz Government’s capacity to reduce food insecurity and undernutrition and to support communities’ long-term resilience. In 2011, with the emphasis shifting towards development and recovery, we implemented a country programme supporting more than half a million people through asset creation and income generation activities. WFP’s current activities focus on an improved school meals project, rural development, social protection, disaster risk management and climate change adaptation.
